As previously reported, Stevie allegedly is taking issue with Mimi’s relationship with woman named Chris Gauld (35), who was recently introduced on this season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. Allegedly, he doesn’t want their daughter, Eva, around Mimi’s new relationship. Mimi and Chris have been dating for over a year. Anywho, the reality star has taken to her Instagram writing,
In 2016 we should not be using gay and lesbian as a way to degrade someone. Someones sexuality is not a reflection of their character and more importantly what type of parent they are. The most important thing is that the child feels love regardless of whether it comes from a man or a woman. We should continue the strides we have made over the last 50+ years and allow people to be who they are.
Meanwhile, in an interview with Page Six, Mimi shares that she isn’t necessarily a fan of labels about her sexuality. She states,
I wouldn’t necessarily say that I’m gay. I like people — I like personalities and I’m attracted to who I’m attracted to. What would you call that?
And on the backlash that she’s received from Stevie, she says,
He actually hasn’t had a conversation with me. I was very insulted by [what he said]. He left his family to be with someone else and who I choose to date isn’t any of his business.
Eva doesn’t know that Chris and I are like that. I don’t have any type of PDA in front of my daughter with Chris and Eva just looks at her as mommy’s friend. If I get really serious with Chris and we’re going to be life partners, of course I will let Eva know that this is something more than just mommy’s friend. I have to be very certain about that first … but if I can live through that whole sex tape thing this is a walk in the park.
